Fall Looks – Huckberry

So now that Labor Day has come and gone, we’re packing away the seersucker. Some folks are putting away the white jeans (some aren’t). College football arrived in all it’s glory this past weekend, and the NFL is on it’s way in just two days. Pretty soon the leaves will be changing… blah blah blah. Fall is coming.

So here at D.o.P., I’ve decided to highlight my own personal fall style in a series of posts using single brands/online shops for each one. First off is new friend of the blog, Huckberry. For the first time in years, I’m not required to wear tailored clothing to work. I’ve been able to lean on the casual side while on the job, so Huckberry’s aesthetic lines right up with mine as of late. So without further ado, here’s a look I’d rock this fall… all courtesy of Huckberry. What from them will you be wearing this fall?

– Fall Endorsement: New Balance 565 –

With Fall starting to roll in and football season in full swing, I’ve been rocking these New Balance’s quite a bit.  Why do I associate these shoes with fall and football season?  Well because they match up quite nicely to the colors of my alma mater, the University of Mississippi: Navy with red, grey and white accents.  Hotty Toddy!


I’ve been wearing them jeans, chinos and especially with slim sweat pants.  Good for running errands, walking the dog… everyday stuff.  Also good for showing some school spirit.  Forward Rebels!  This colorway is exclusive to JD Sports.  They’ve also got some other great options, including some killer offerings from Nike too.


The Knottery New Arrivals for Spring 2013

Honestly, is there anyone out there that plays the affordable style game better than The Knottery?  For the past two years, they’ve brought us all the fun we could ever want around our necks, stuffed in our pockets, holding up our pants, covering our heads… well, you get the idea.  They know what they’re doing.  For this spring and summer, Jay and Jack are continuing their efforts to make awesome accessories made here in the US.  I’m a big fan of the belts and caps this year.  Head over and check it all out.  Very perfect.







Spring Shoe Lineup

So temperatures are going to go up soon, right?  I mean, this cold streak we call “winter” has gone on quite long enough, if you ask me.  The longing for warmer weather has me poking around webstores for options that I’d like to add to my spring shoe lineup.  One can get his unstructured sport coat and slim linen trouser game on point; but if you’re still walking around in beat up boat shoes, someone might accuse you of being “sooooo 2009.”  So, if you’re looking to add some “2013” to your spring shoe collection, feel free to go for any of these.  And yes, there are plenty of double monk straps… because, you know, #menswear.  Just perfect.

Billy Reid Made to Measure Video

Over the past six months, I’ve really taken an interest in Made to Measure suiting.  As someone who works in the menswear retail industry, it has afforded me the opportunity to learn all aspects of the process, such as taking the measurements, seeing the translation between a customer’s body shape and the adjustments that are necessary to be made, and even the numerous suiting models from vendor to vendor.  Understanding what goes in to making a well fitting suit is inspiring.  Billy Reid has posted quite an inspirational video coinciding with his Made to Measure Events this spring.  Click here to check out the schedule and to make an appointment… then watch the video below.  Perfect.

Need: L.B.M. Field Jacket

This.  I need it.  Like, for realz y’all.  I’m a big Luigi Bianchi Mantova/Lubiam/L.B.M. 1911 fan; so after seeing this, you can bet I’ll be scouring Yoox months from now hoping this thing shows up (because cheaper, amirite?).  This Field Jacket will certainly keep you dry this spring as it is made with waterproof Loro Piana storm system fabric.  Just top notch… So perfect.
